    Hear me out, I am wondering if anyone uses tools to manage their finances or strategies when gambling online? I know there aren't tools of software's that guarantee winning, but I wonder if there are tools that can help you manage your gambling more effectively and efficiently?

    I don't do it, I just try to keep my head well focused, know the game well, and the best strategy to win. Even so, I lose haha. :D

    What about you? :)

    If you are playing Blackjack without the standard play chart either with you or memorized, you are doing it wrong. Many casinos allow you to have it with you as long as it doens´t slow down your playing, others frown upon it. And of course with online gambling you should always have it next to you along with some percentages that shift depending on card counting. Online Blackjack, if you set everything up right, is a game where you actually have the advantage. Of course it is like 52%, so you still have to be able to have a large enough bank to play through some runs of bad luck.

    As for other things.. My biggest other item is a large, loud touristy shirt that makes me look like someone who just got off of the cruise ships. I play poker in a casino where there is a large cruise line that drops of tourists for a few hours a couple times a week. It is like taking candy from a baby playing poker against drunk tourists as long as they think you are just one of them

    The trick is to find people who come off of a ship where they are getting free drinks and going into a casino where they are getting free drinks. :) And then playing a game against them that involves math and probability.

    lol it's a good one, I've seen it in the movies and on the online tutorials about poker, they don't even know what hit them, but they also don't care do they? :D

    yeah, it isn´t like this is real high stakes poker or anything. I usually play poker in the little town where the cruise line stops on Tuesday for a few hours, and then sometimes on weekends go into the big city and play Blackjack, which can get more serious but you never really get wiped out with blackjack, on bad days it is just a slow bleed.
